Jeffrey Bronken was piloting the plane about 4 a.m. when it hit power lines before crashing nose-first into a median of a six-lane street.

The father and daughter were traveling to Florida for spring break, along with Katherine Bronken's softball teammate, 15-year-old Keyana Linbo. She survived the crash, but remains hospitalized.
